Vintage Violas in Watercolor

Painting Vintage Style Pansies – Simple Secrets to Successful Watercolor Sketches

Why not start a botanical sketchbook this summer? Take your box of paints and a small mixed media sketchbook like mine from Canson XL and make some simple but charming vintage style sketches while enjoying the sunshine.
